My dearest Husband,

I was glad to get your note from Ash this morning, & must try & send you a line in answer.  I am glad to say I still get a little stronger every day, though you mustn’t expect too much of me when you get home, I don’t think you will find me out of bed.  I had a long letter from Polly today, giving me news of dear Jack who seems to be quite happy & good.  The little girls are quite well, Ethel a little troubled with some teeth, I think they will all be very glad to have Papa home to have a rough.  Baby boy gives us capital nights, though generally rather fretty towards evening, he seems to approve of his two bottles.  I suppose you are at Deal today, I had a few lines from Miss Hougham the other day.  Mrs Ashwin, Mrs Byrch & Mr Hunt have called to enquire after me, Mrs Allen Haynes has not troubled to so far.  Give my love to Mrs Sladden & Charlotte & tell the former I shall be very glad of the robe which she offered to send me.  Excuse my writing darling, I can’t manage it very well.  I hope your change has done you good, there is another absurd letter from B. Cull in the Evesham Journal, abusing you & Masters.

Now my dearest, with much love & many kisses

Believe me
Your fond wife

Eugénie N Sladden
